In 2011, Pentagram released a live DVD recorded at Sonar, during the Maryland Deathfest VIII, at the end of the Liebling / Griffin reunion. Named after one of their most popular and oldest tracks, “When The Screams Come” will now (17th April, via Metal Blade Records) be released in vinyl, in three different versions – 180 g black, clear/blue splatter and red. All of them include a free poster.

The concert was too long to fit in just one record, but not long enough to fill two. So the B-side of record no. 2 features five bonus track, recorded at Heavy Halloween Show last October, Arts Riot, Burlington. The full tracklist is as follows:

Side A:
Day Of Reckoning
Forever My Queen
Ask No More
Run My Course
You’re Lost, I’m Free
Review Your Choices

Side B:
All Your Sins

Side C:
20 Buck Spin
Sign Of The Wolf
When The Screams Come

Side D:
Death Row
Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood (cover)
